    Ta/Ni[sub 81]Fe[sub 19] and Ni[sub 81]Fe[sub 19]/Ta structures are commonly used in the magnetic multilayers with giant magnetoresistance. For a Ta/Ni[sub 81]Fe[sub 19]/Ta fundamental structure, Ta seed and Ta cap layers resulted in a loss of moment equivalent to a magnetically dead layer of...

    Abstract. Interlayer diffusion in epitaxial systems with a high energy barrier at the atomic steps -- the so-called Ehrlich-Schwoebel (ES) barrier -- is strongly reduced. As a consequence of this, a continuous accumulation of roughness takes place during growth. This undesirable effect can be...

    An effective method for molecular beam epitaxial construction of metastable, pseudomorphic SnGe/Ge(001) heterostructures is presented. This method exploits a surfactant species, Bi, to alter Sn surface-segregation kinetics. Using the x-ray standing wave technique, we demonstrate not only that Bi...
